    X Files is awesome. But are they trying to replace them with younger people? zzzz And the drug sequence?

    The amount of divine intervention and soap opera dialogue + heavy breathing in every scene is so overwhelming. I hate how they are propping up the nurse too but I had hopes the writing would return to the previous season, twas wrong.

    Really enjoyed the new Better Call Saul episode. Rhea Seehorn is a fucking hottie.

    So far I have enjoyed BCS more than BB.

    The drug sequence was what I was talking about. I thought it was hysterical and totally something Mulder would hallucinate about.I highly doubt they're thinking of replacing Mulder and Scully with younger people...hopefully they learned their lesson with Agent Reyes

    Regarding The Walking Dead, the writing for the latest episode was atrocious, but I suppose this one wasn't about that...kill or be killed

    I haven't watched any of the new Walking Dead episodes. Is the current season any good?

    I thought the first half was the worst the show's been in a long time. The fakeout death was the stupidest shit they've pulled in the show's history, the moralizing is getting unbearable and the finale was a total non-event. Still, I liked seasons 4 and 5 so I hope they can get their shit together again. As a comic reader, I'm telling you, if they somehow get the upcoming Negan arc right it'll be amazing.

    Man, Better Call Saul is fantastic! I really hope to see some more BB characters in this season.

    Netflix are working on making Altered Carbon (and presumably the sequels) into a series. This is a good thing.

    Looks like there will be a lot of Punisher in the next series of Daredevil. Another good thing.

    I've quit watching it for the most part because I've gotten bored with the series.I hate that it seems like the fucking show has caused this awful trendy zombie culture. There may never be a good zombie apocalypse type movie again because of TWD.

    Sounds like I'm being an elitist or whatever but goddamnit my parents shouldn't be inviting me over to watch a zombie show with them. They never even liked a zombie movie, ever. Not even Shaun of the Dead.

    i thought zombies had got trendy well before THE WALKING DEAD and if anything it was taking advantage of that. i remember people going on about the zombie apocalypse several years back. i'm sure it's contributed and whatnot though. i don't personally care, what bothers me is how repetitive it gets sometimes--same old crises and moral dilemmas over and over. also the regularly shitty dialogue and the inability to decide how comic bookish it wants to be. i'm only on the fourth season though, still persisting with it for the time being. the game looks cool, i started it recently.

    Oh yeah zombies were popular as shit before the show came out, I'd say The Walking Dead is more the horrible and inevitable conclusion. I remember people randomly buying these zombie survival guide books they sell at nerd shops, it was definitely building up.

    As a huge fan of zombie cinema, I feel you. I could easily see myself saying this these days.

    As soon as something references a zombie I'm like [yaaaaaawwwwwnnnnnn slit wrists with a box of unsalted crackers].

    hey it's not the zombies' fault a bunch of cunts started liking them, they never wanted this. they're basically the kurt cobain of supernatural phenomena except they have no way of killing themselves
